Weekly Photo Challenge: Red

I’ve found it quite tough to find anything related to the Weekly Photo Challenge: Red. Nothing caught my attention, no flowers or quirky red things anywhere. I considered taking a pic of the old red phone box on the outskirts of the village but I saw someone had already done that! About an hour ago…

My Grandad – a rare breed.

My Grandad was one of a dying breed of people, kind, caring, charitable, funny and a fountain of knowledge he was only too happy to share when asked. My recent post about old drivers prompted me to finish this piece about a very important person in my life, one of the few people I had…
